Although Huawei’s first Android-powered smartphone was officially announced last week, the Chinese company gave no details about the carriers that would sell it.
Now we’ve got some info saying that Huawei will be launching the smartphone via T-Mobile.
According to DigiTimes, the first shipments of Huawei’s Android touchscreen handset will reach T-Mobile in the third quarter of 2009.
The source doesn’t mention whether T-Mobile Europe or T-Mobile USA will be the carriers to release the smartphone. However, it’s very likely that both of them will add the device to their lineup of products.
Sadly, the features of Huawei’s first Android handset are not known for the moment, but the prototype showcased by the company during MWC 2009 does look promising:

Apart from partnering with T-Mobile, Huawei has also made a deal with TIM Brazil, the third largest Brazilian mobile carrier (more than 35 million users).
TIM Brazil should be ready to launch a Huawei Android smartphone at about the same time with T-Mobile, thus in the second half of the year.
